for the last two months finding the economy actually added 181,000 jobs up from 141,000 in august. and in august the economy added 142,000 jobs up from the initially lack luster 96,000 initially reported. so there were in total 200,000 new jobs on this jobs report. president obama tried to put today's good news jobs report in context, campaigning in virginia. >> after losing about 800,000 jobs a month when i took office, our businesses have now added 5.2 million new jobs over the past 2 1/2 years. this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. more americans entered the work force, more people are getting jobs. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> mitt romney also campaigning in virginia. not as impressed. >> we don't have to stay in the path we've been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. and the unemployment rate as you know this year has come down very slowl

will. i'll just create a better economy by snapping my fingers now. don't know how long he can get away with this, maybe until election day, but he's taking this position that it almost doesn't matter what he says as long as it sounds good at the time. >> cecile, let me ask you about, when you get up in the morning and worry about the possibility of this election going the wrong way from your perspective of a volunteer for obama, when you really think, and you have to talk to your best friends whom we care most about, when you tell pro choice women what they should fear from the next administration, should it be a romney administration, what is your concerns? what are the list of concerns you have? >> first of all, the thought that my daughters would have fewer rights than i do, or my granddaughters or other folks' children, women would literally lose the right to make their own personal decisions about health care, about having children is absolutely incredible. that is frightening. the other thing that's an immediate concern is planned parenthood. we see 3 million patients every year.

's the american people with one message, that he can take us to a better place, he can deliver us from the economy we all inherited from george w. bush to something better. romney came out best in the first debate because he denied the path he has chosen, denied the big tax cut from 35% down to 28% for people at the top bracket. the all-out elimination of the estate tax, the big-time cut in the corporate rate. he do denied his plan to limit nate medicare, denied he would kill coverage for those with pre-existing conditions. he got away without bolterring to deny his plan to let the automobile industry to go bankrupt and to dump 40 million people to wait in the energy ro emergency room. let's look at the some of the latest polling in the wake of wednesday's debate. this afternoon pew released a poll that showed a dramatic shift toward romney. this poll covers the four days sibts the debate and it has romney pulling even with president obama among registered voters, 46% even. four weeks ago pew had obama up by nine among registered voters, so this has been a huge shift in the pew poll. the move in t

republicans who admire what he did -- >> because he did the economy. >> what he did with the economy. so i think this particular clinton card is being played very judiciously by the campaign. they're going to put him out there even more so. i think it's smart. >> now, if you were romney, would you do the same thing with george w.? would you bring him into the big swing states and have giant rallies with you and george w.? would you do that. i'm just teasing. >> i don't see george bush as an anathema. >> would you bring him out for the big rallies in columbus. >> the president probably doesn't want to participate in this campaign. but there are some spots in town he could probably help. >> how would you like w. out there campaigning for the other guy. >> i strongly recommend to romney that he campaign everywhere with george w. bush. if you look at all the data, people still blame by a margin of two to one the economic problems in this country on bush. so i think -- and the other thing, by the way, it would open up for the president is the very clear case that if you didn't like the bush/che

. the combination of limiting deductions as well as growth of our economy will make up for the reduction in rate. >> bob shrum, thank got in the rest of this discussion with wolf blitzer, he clarified the fact he's going to cut $5 trillion in revenue, a lot of it from wealthy people. >>> he's not going to the bank, he's going to let that tax cut stand. you can call it a lie, he's cutting taxes for the rich. he says he's going to offset that, but when asked by wolf blitzer, are you going after where the money is, the mortgage deduction? rule going after charitable, which everybody seems to like? i'm not going to keep those preferences. how can he do it? is he houdini? >> he can't do it. the tax policy center says you can get rid of all of the deductions and it wouldn't pay -- and that's what they do cost before they're offset. that's just a fact. he's actually misquoting the president's campaign manager, but he then goes on to say, well, maybe we can't set a limit of $17,000 or $20,000 or $25,000. that would be the total deductions you could take. for a lot of middle-class fame with pretty substa

in the economy that say that the surges are true. >> here you put out unbelievable jobs numbers, fair enough. these chicago guys will do anything, can't change the numbers. what evidence do you have that the chicago guys got to the bls, the bureau labors of statics. >> i have no evidence. i just raised the question. >> is that a fair assessment of what jack welch said? he went out and said, the chicago guys changed the numbers. >> well, that's his assessment of it. >> he said he had no evidence but that's what he believes. >> do you believe that any sane person really believes that you have can get into the labor statistics? joy-ann, go ahead. >> richard nixon tried to get into that agency and actually floated a really racist conspiracy theory that he couldn't break in there. the idea that the chicago guys. what chicago guys? welch, who i used to respect, by the way, said i didn't mean the white house. which chicago guys are you talking about? number of foreclosures have hit a record low. have the banks conspired? no. they can't stand barack obama. the numbers are numbers. >> numbers are num

. with the election just weeks away, positive news about the economy ignites desperation among angry republicans. >>> last time i told you about republican congressman paul broun, the member of the house science committee who called things like evolution and even the big bang theory lies from the pit of hell. are you curious who else is picking up the slack for broun on the science committee while he's out there spreading his "planet of the apes" world view? dana rohrabacher called global warming a complete fraud. quote, we don't know what those other cycles were caused by in the past. could be dinosaur flatulence or, you know, who knows. might be tricky to square that with broun's assertion that the earth is only 9,000 years old. next it's ralph hall. in order to support legislation to cut finding for scientific research and education, hall said this about scientists who come before his committee to talk about the reality of climate change. quote, i think we ought to listen to them. i just don't think we ought to mind them. that's a thinker. their colleague, jim sensenbrenner, has called the id

started, although i don't see anything in the economy that says these surges are true. >> but here you put out the word here, unbelievable jobs nments, fair enough, these chicago guys will do anything so they change the numbers. what evidence do you have that they got to the bls? that the chicago guys got to the bureau of labor statistics and jimmied these numbers by 0.3% as you put it? >> i6 no evidence to prove that. i just raise the question. >> well, alex, now -- admit he's an honest guy about that, he said there's no evidence. here is the question, now we do have evidence based upon the reports today that the jobs numbers are getting better, the best they've been since the beginning of the administration. that seems to back up entirely what the report was about the reduction from 8.1 to 7.8 on friday. >> of course. but did you hear mitt romney say the number 7.8 at all? in fact, the day those numbers came out, he put out his own math which was it's actually closer to 11%. this party sun is unwilling to admit these numbers are right because they see it as political gain for the preside
